Thanks for your query,
what would you like to know?
Have you got the results?
Thanks I'll take a look
His sperm count is million is 0.17, when it should be over 39
This alone means little chance of sperm reaching the tube alive
also some of the sperm cannot move fast properly enough
also some of the sperm have abnormal shape so this affects their movement also
What the doctor can do is take his semen and separate the normal from abnormal sperm and inseminate that into you to coincide with when you ovulate.
If however they feel that his sperm is too abnormal for this to happen, then the other option would be donor sperm but I cant tell that just from the results and its usually recommended to repeat the test again in 3 mths
He should take lots of supplements like zinc and selenium to boost his sperm count, avoid smooking alcohol and tight underwear.
Theres not much testing here apart from repeating the test, checking for chlamydia, antisperm antibodies and gene testing to make sure he does not have a gene mutation causing the problem.
But that will all be arranged by the fertility clinic themselves not by your GP
Its all guess, there's no way of knowing if it was that but yes that is a possibility
I'll never say absolutely not, theres always a small possibilty but I'll say highly unlikely with those numbers
As its not just the count thats the issue but also the shape and movement of the sperm, so there are three things working against here
With millions of sperm only a few hundred eventually make it to the tube to reach the egg, and of those few hundred only a small handful survive long enough to wait for the egg to arrive.
No worries, happy to help
Yes its very possible
